About

A native New Yorker, Diane had an earlier career including 17 years as a management consultant to local nonprofits concerned with poverty or disenfranchisement; work in NYC government; and several years as a lawyer at a large NYC law firm.

In late 2006 Diane began making collages that started her on her current path; in late 2007 she left her consulting job to focus on her artwork full-time, and to study with Bruce Dorfman at the Art Students League in New York. She has had solo exhibits including those at the University of Connecticut, U. Mass. Amherst, and the Living Room Gallery at Saint Peter’s Church in Manhattan, as well as pieces in group shows in New York City, elsewhere in the US, and in Italy. One of her drawings appears in The Visual Language of Drawing (2012). In 2012 she attended the Vermont Studio Center with an artist’s grant. In 2013 she won the Allied Artists of America award at the Butler Institute of American Art.

Englander works with formal means to create a place between discord and tranquility, a zone with a charged harmony that energizes as it also provides refuge. That search means she has to attack the prettiness of an initial surface, avoid balance, court darkness or stridency, investing a work with conflict. Some of her efforts, which began with collaged surfaces only subtly alluding to three dimensions, have moved more firmly into space. With multiple layers of paper, gouges to the surface, or materials that are unambiguously three dimensional.

Inspiration from the world that we don't call art also calls her: a wall, a landscape, a window shade transfused with light, a stretch of sand and shadow. (And of course echoes from other artists, Burri, Vicente, Tapies, Motherwell, Rauschenberg, medieval cloisonné, Vermeer, Breughel, and others.)
